Culture & Cocktails: Foodies

A Tasty Conversation with Local Chefs

It is with an abundance of caution and concern for our guests and staff that we have decided to postpone this event to November 7, 2022 at The Ben in Downtown West Palm Beach. All current RSVPs/tickets for the event will be honored for the new date at no additional cost.

Chef Lindsay Autry is a co-partner and founder of The Regional Kitchen & Public House in West Palm Beach. She has held positions in restaurants on the East Coast and in Mexico, made headlines as a finalist on Bravo’s ninth season of Top Chef, and was a three-time James Beard nominee (2018, 2019, 2020) for Best Chef: South. Autry describes her cuisine as soulful, embracing Mediterranean flavors with a blend of her Southern roots.

Chef Pushkar Marathe is executive chef at Stage Kitchen & Bar in Palm Beach Gardens. Born in India, his culinary roots originate in the rich tapestry of flavors from his homeland. His early culinary training was in Switzerland and has held cooking positions in restaurants in the Caribbean, the Middle East, and around the United States.

Chef Lisabet “LB” Summa is executive chef at Elisabetta’s Ristorante in Delray Beach and West Palm Beach. After working in restaurants in Chicago and South Florida, she became the culinary catalyst for the 18 restaurants of the Big Time Restaurant Group. Summa is one of the few women in the U.S. restaurant industry who is both a senior culinary operations executive and owner.

The conversation will be moderated by Libby Volgyes, award-winning food & restaurant photographer.
